Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This French collection is a kind of companion volume to the Rameau recording La Pantomime, and includes repertoire Skip Sempe has often performed in concerts, but has not yet recorded. In company of the superb harpsichord by Bruce Kennedy, Sempe is the ideal guide for this voyage into the extraordinary diversity of French harpsichord music from the Age of the Enlightenment.



Reviews

A+
This is fairly heady, exotic stuff, played with refinement and taste. Recorded on a gorgeous and gorgeous-sounding instrument, hard core harpsichord enthusiasts should not hesitate.
